Risk criteria in EUV.M. TrbojevicRisk Support Limited, London, U.K.ABSTRACT: This paper focuses on risk criteria used in the EU for population living in vicinity of hazardousfacilities. The criteria vary from fully risk-based and goal setting to the prescriptive consequence based criteria.In spite of the philosophical differences in the formulation of risk criteria, there is a single EU Directive(Seveso 2) on the control of major accident hazards involving chemicals which applies to every member stateand clearly the level of safety across the EU should be very similar if not the same. Therefore the first aim ofthe paper was to minimise the differences between the variety of safety approaches across the EU in order todevelop risk acceptance criteria with the potential to converge to a unified set. The second aim was to developsocietal risk criteria completely consistent with the legally applied individual risk criteria
